The US has a lower murder rate than all but a handful of countries in the Western Hemisphere, which would be:
Martinique, Canada, Chile, and Argentina.
Last I checked these countries had lower murder rates per capita than the US and also fall within the Western Hemisphere
Parts are France are also with the Western Hemisphere Algeria also has parts within the Western Hemisphere
So the list is longer than you make it out to be.
And out of the countires that are considered the developed world the US ranks at number 1 in murder in rate.
Don't confuse him so. He's putting so much effort into spinning his yarn.
